that can stay on your dog.
The dog lift harness is especially helpful for owners whose dogs are feeling the effects of aging or health issues. It’s also perfect for Veterinarians and Orthopedic Surgeons who work with dogs recovering from injuries or surgery. In fact, the pain it minimizes may very well be your own!
What makes this dog harness truly unique is it’s designed to stay on your dog for extended periods of time. Unlike towels, slings or leashes that need to be rigged with each use, or ramps that have to be moved or adjusted, our harness is right at hand, whenever you need it. We believe if support isn’t there when your dog needs it, it’s just too late.
It’s there whenever you need it. Perfect for getting in and out of vehicles or up and down stairs.
The Help’EmUp Harness represents a breakthrough for Orthopedic Surgeons, Veterinarians, Vet Techs, Therapists, or anyone else who is lifting dogs on a daily basis, because you can’t help them if doing so is hurting YOU! Our dog lifting harness provides a way to provide better care for dogs recovering from injuries or surgery — simply by reducing the chances of re-injury during recuperation.
Our unique design lifts the dog’s mass from below, beneath the chest and pelvis, distributing weight over large padded surfaces. The chest and back panels are lined with new air flow materials and perforated neoprene to keep the harness as cool and comfortable as possible. Straps are also covered with neoprene sleeves and areas of most friction are covered with super soft micro fleece.
The Help’EmUp comes in 5 sizes:
x-small, small, medium, large and x-large, for dogs from 8 to 220 pounds.
The “Hip Lift” half consists of a belly band, support straps and a movable pelvic pad that spreads weight over multiple surfaces, allowing you to lift the complete pelvic floor while supporting the spine. By lifting from beneath, and not around the legs, it reduces strain on joints, ligaments and arteries.
Constructed of neoprene, the harness is buoyant and perfect for getting pups in and out of water – therapists will appreciate that. It’s machine washable, so it cleans up easily – but we recommend you let it air dry for greater longevity.
It’s made of neoprene, so it’s buoyant, extremely comfortable and machine washable.
Today’s dogs are living longer. According to recent data, nearly 50% of dogs in the United States are age 6 or older, and as many as 31% of them are between the ages of 6 and 10. Past the age of 7, the incidence of canine arthritis doubles and, for many dogs mobility starts to become an issue. With hip dysplasia, myelopathy, joint disease and muscle atrophy, this harness becomes real help for owners and vets who need it.
